Emraan Hashmi Reacts To Kangana Ranaut’s Nepotism Remarks, Says ‘Putting Blame On The Entire Industry Is Wrong’

New Delhi: Emraan Hashmi, who is gearing up to unveil his new web series ‘Showtime’, addressed the debate around nepotism in Bollywood. The actor opened up in a new interview with Dainik Bhaskar on the nepotism discussion, which was initiated by actor Kangana Ranaut a few years ago. 

In the interview, Emraan said in Hindi, “I like Kangana a lot personally, as an artist. Maybe she might have had some bad experiences in the film industry. I have worked with her on Gangster. In that film she had a more important lead role than me. That is why she got an exposure with that film.”

“So, I don’t think that only the ones favoured with nepotism gets the chance. However, Kangana might have her own opinion, but putting the blame on the entire industry is wrong. There might be a few. Not all are drug addicts in the industry,” he added.

Kangana and Emraan first worked in ‘Gangster’ and have since starred in other films together, including ‘Raaz: The Mystery Continues’, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’, and ‘Ungli’.

Kangana Ranaut labelled Karan Johar the “flag-bearer of nepotism” on his chat show Koffee with Karan in 2017. Her nepotism remark at Koffee with Karan has now received a lot of attention, especially after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

On the work front, Emraan most recently appeared as an antagonist in Tiger 3. His forthcoming show, ‘Showtime’, co-stars Mouni Roy, Naseeruddin Shah, Mahima Makwana, Rajeev Khandelwal, and Shriya Saran. It will be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar on March 8. Next, he will make a cameo appearance in Sara Ali Khan starrer ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’. The actor will also appear in two Telugu films: ‘They Call Him OG’ and ‘G2’.
